  • The sounds of starlings usher in fall

    The other evening I was sitting outside under a tree babysitting our hens.  
    We have only been letting them out in the evening under supervision until we can get a handle on some fox problems (we are working on it!).  
    As I sat and read, a sense of calm came over me and I was surprised to realize that it was triggered by a little flock of nasty starlings.  
    Starlings start to flock up this time of the year and I guess there was just some sort of Pavlovian response that said, yes, fall is just around the corner, the starlings say so.
